Paper towel turns hydrophobic using chromatografting

The control of vapor pressure (continuous passage of molecules from a gaseous form to a liquid one) makes it possible to deposit on the surface of paper, at a very high speed (< 1s), an extremely thin (< 1µ) layer of molecules of plant origin (fatty acids) and to trigger off a reaction so as to render paper hydrophobic
